Park City Institute

The St. Regis Big Stars Bright Nights Concert Series had a change in venue last week, now they’re hoping to make the change permanent.

The Grace Potter concert on July 13 was held at City Park after a conflict in schedule meant that Quinn’s Junction was unavailable. Park City Institute Director Teri Orr says they’re now hoping to make City Park the venue for the remaining August and September concerts.

The Park City Institute’s Big Stars, Bright Nights Concert Series rolls on with a performance on Monday evening from Chris Blue.

Chris Blue won season 12 of The Voice, a television singing competition on NBC, but Blue got his start at three-years-old singing with his family in churches in the South.

The Park City Institute’s “Big Stars, Bright Nights” series kicks-off Tuesday at a new location. The opening act is three brothers who call themselves “Los Lonely Boys.”

The band plays at the Quinn’s Junction Sports Complex on Tuesday, July 3rd, at 6:00 pm.

Last week, we talked to JoJo Garza. JoJo sings and plays bass guitar in the band with brothers Ringo and Henry.

The band has been called “Texican rock n roll”, and we asked JoJo to describe what they present.

Park City Institute is busy tackling challenges of pop-up show and hoping to get a little of help from members of the community. David Boyle has more:

Park City Institute may have found a location for their St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights outdoor concert series this summer. Institute Director Terri Orr says they're not counting their chickens yet; they're waiting on a decision from the Park City Council. Rick Brough has more:
